Multi Cursors

Introduction

Adobe has just launched version 1.0 of Brackets, its free open-source text editor that is built in HTML, CSS and JavaScript, for writing coding in HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Brackets started as an open-source project over three years ago, and developers who want to customize the text editor to fit their motives can pull the source code from the app’s Github project page and alter it as they wish, and add their changes for others to use.

Currently, Brackets 1.0, as well as a preview of Extract for Brackets (an extension that Adobe itself has been working on) are available for Windows, Mac and Linux. Brackets is targeting mainly at Web developers (front-end) and designers. They are offering interesting features like inline editors (select and press ctrl + E / push command) will show inline window to update particular code without pop-ups or additional tabs, Live Preview to see instantly changes on screen and view CSS selector for quick edits and built in support for preprocessors.
